Hi everyone!

Just wanted to introduce myself. I am Kirsty and I thought you would be interested in a new great website!

It is yoorgooroo.com. It ‘promises to revolutionise online sports teaching’ and it is a great concept

1. users video their athletics technique problem and upload it

2. they browse yoorGooRoo.com's selection of GooRoos and choose one on the basis of experience, language, user rating and price

3. the GooRoo analyses the problem and uploads a personalised video solution

4. the user downloads the solution to their technique problem

5. the GooRoo is paid by yoorGooRoo.com

I really think it is going to work as people are now familiar with the process of making a video and uploading it to a web site

There is a huge untapped market for personal sports tuition from experts, (DVD's, specialist magazines, books or existing "HowTo" websites are NOT "one to one")

Also many professionals are familiar with new technology such as video making and editing

It is pre launch but recruiting now. Great way to earn extra cash or improve your athletics.

They ask that if you want to be a GooRoo you need to understand your sport inside out, be able to teach and have some basic ability to edit a movie using one of the video editing packages available, consumer or professional

Oh and they are also running a draw to win an HD video camera if you sign up!

I would hope that you need to prove that you have the relevant qualifications.

I looked in to how to gain a coaching qualification recently and discovered that, as you'd expect, there are different levels of qualification required dependant on what level you intend to coach at.

Level one , for example gives you a basic understanding of the required skills but does not permit you to coach individuals on your own. You have to be "under the wing" of a higher level of qualified coach.

There are also separate qualifications that you require in order to coach minors.

how would that be policed online?

You can know a sport extremely well but not necessarily have a coaching license.

I'm sure there are many questions that could be asked.

good luck with it though.

Easy money!

How much do I get??


(Then I'll come here, pose the questions and post back! Money for being a middleman!!)



PS - that was a joke - I really don't see this working - if you are internet savvy enough to join a site, surely you'd research "free" sites for friendly advice?
